BBQ cod

I really enjoy this dish at a number of spots, including Nate n Al's. Today they made me a BBQ cod benedict which was quite nice for $14.95 (2 bucks more than salmon benedict on substitution). I enjoyed a velvety smoked haddock benedict while in London and this was almost as good. Nice amount of fish, "light" non-gloopy hollandaise and well poached eggs, and crispy hashbrowns on the side. If you are looking for a different breakfast than the usual bagel and lox, give it a shot. I'd also like to know other places that do a good job with this sort of thing. Thanks.

      100% agree with Brent's. They actually make their own bbq cod and it's so moist and tasty. For $43 you can get their smoked fish platter that serves 3-4 with a very generous serving of smoked white fish, bbq cod, lox, herring, 4 bagels, cream cheese, potato salad, slaw, cucumber salad, OJ and coffee. Well worth a trip to Northridge.

        that sounds delish and quite a deal too.

        barney greengrass has the most succulent, subtle sable I've ever NYC. I've never tried it in BH.

          Just tried this yesterday ... i agree. best ive had in town. best by a lot. $23 for appetizer portion with bagel cream cheese pickle tomato onion etc.

          thanks guys - I do enjoy Barney Greengrass. For me, their lox is the number one in town. Will have to check out the Nosh and Brent's. I was impressed how nate and al's did on the non-fish elements of the dish including the really nicely golden hashbrowns and the sauce and eggs. I've heard so many good things about Brents and have walked by the Nosh many times. On a related note, a friend got some fresh smoked sea bass at whole foods and it was delish and also had a nice texture that would suit a benedict. I never knew WF did that -- I understand you can get smoked halibut and other smoked fish there too apart from the usual suspects.

            The Nosh has really good kettle boiled bagels as well.

            1. re: Thor123

              excellent. Stale-ish bagels is Barney Greengrass' Achilles heel

          2. re: Thor123

            OK, I tried the Nosh. I agree they have terrific fresh bagels. The cod was a bit watery like sometimes king crab legs come but it was a smoky tasty product. All and all a nice lunch. The atmosphere there is relaxed and clean and I'll be back for other stuff (couldn't quite work up the appetite for the pastrami benedict with swiss cheese hollandaise.) thanks for the tip.

          3. The other day I saw a hand-lettered "Smoked Cod" sign at Mort's -- 18452 Clark St., Tarzana (Reseda Bv., 1 block north of Ventura Bv.) Call them at (818) 345-3700.
